Lights, Camera, Action!
A Magic of the Kingdom Tale
©2015 Dark Kitten & Zoe Taylor

12 year old Mark O’Malley had been practically typecast as the dopey sidekick because of his role in the runaway hit Disney production, “My Brother Mark”. But while on the set of his older sister Krissy’s much darker sci-fi movie production, a misheard comment leads to a whole new branch in his career, and in his life.

Rescue

Rescue

All my life I’ve been a big advocate of acts of kindness. I’ve always said you can never know just how much difference even a simple act can make.

Then one day I learned how right I had been ....

I was having a tough week looking for a job, and on the spur of the moment I decided to go for a drive to clear my head.

I headed out of town, thinking I’d visit a nearby town that had a botanical garden, but as I approached the turn-off, I saw a car in the ditch.

You're Beautiful Conclusion: Kristin's New Look

At the girls’ sleepover, Kristin found herself sharing a bed with Kate. While in bed, Kate asks Kristin about whether or not she was honest when saying she thought a particular boy was cute. Kristin hesitated, not knowing what to say. We return the scene right after Kate’s question.

Let me know what you thought of the story overall! You're compliments and opinions make my day! :)

You're Beautiful Part 4: Kristin's First Night

Tom, temporarily known as Kristin, is off with Kate to meet with her twin cousins Allie and Paige to see a new scary movie at the local movie theater, after Kate put full effort into dolling up Kristin. At the end of Part 3, Kate leaned in and pecked Kristin on the lips. What does this mean? What will happen between these "two" girls?

Note: This is Part 4 in my series, "You're Beautiful". You should check out Parts 1, 2, and 3 (which you can find on my page) BEFORE you read this.

You're feedback is great! Keep the comments and messages coming :)

You're Beautiful Part 3: Trying out “Kristin"

When we left off, Tom was dressed completely as a girl, and he, Kate, Lexie, and Jenny, were off to the concert. Tom, however, had doubts about the feelings he was getting from his dressing up. Will it continue, or will he put a halt to it?

Anuvar, a glistening jewel in the sea, gifted by the Goddess to Her people. Yet their ears have become deaf to Her song, and a doom hangs over the Isle. The famed singer Orlando typifies their plight; the Goddess gifted him with the most amazing talent to stir men’s souls, yet he squanders it for wenching and wine.

Candy Crush


Candy Crush

This one started as an entry to the Feb 2016 Crush Mini-Competition. The name came from the game (a former, temporary addiction) but the game has nothing to do with the story. As happens on occasions, the story kept growing, and I was only half way through when the competition deadline went whistling past. I persevered though.

I actually thought I hadn’t finished it, so it was a little surprise, when I dug it out earlier today, to find that it was complete, albeit that most of it seemed to have been written on my phone, which meant that parts were all but unreadable, thanks to the Autokorrect Nazis in my former piece of junk. For that, and many other reasons, I will never be tempted to buy a Widows phone again.

Anyway, I’ve spent an enjoyable day reacquainting myself with this little piece, and fixing (I hope) most if not all of the buggerups. I hope you all find it just as enjoyable. Please share your thoughts and feelings at the end. Remember, it takes twenty-six muscles to frown, four to smile, and only one to click on that comment button (then maybe one or two more to add some text). I really love hearing from you. Private messages are good if you want to stay anonymous.

Also, feel free to comment with feedback or message me! Thank you!

Decisions
The Conclusion

Bob and Megan, a married couple in their final years retired for the night. Just before drifting off to sleep Bob made an off hand comment to which Megan agreed with a slight twist. They did not know something was listening and granted their wish. How will this challenge work out when they hardly know the rules of the game?

Sept 20, 2011
Newly edited through the unforgiving seventh grade English teacher. There are a few minor changes but nothing to alter the story. You will notice a change from first person narrative to third person in some scenes. This is intentional. The primary focus is from Bob/Sarah's point of view. I shifted to third person when Bob/Sarah was not involved in the scene and for areas where scene setting is involved. With that in mind it should lessen any confusion. I trust this helps convince you there is a method for the writers madness and it is not a lack of skill. This decision may be a failure but I did it on purpose.

Just Let Me Do Your Hair…Part 6: Mascara too?

The premise is what if. What if as a senior citizen you were sent back in time into the body of a teenager of the different sex. You were given a task to perform but none of the host's memories. You retained your own knowledge and memories. Could you navigate that world? What would the experience do to you?

Lara Croft – The True Origin

Lara Croft – The True Origin
by Maeryn Lamonte

There was a point, when I was browsing the Summer 2015 vacation Getaway contest entries a few weeks back, that I came across a link to DarkKitten’s Entertainment Retro-Game contest, and it sparked off an idea. It wasn’t until some time later that I realised that DarkKitten’s contest was for last year. Even so, I liked the idea enough that I decided to finish the story. It would have been cool to be part of last year’s competition, but no matter, here is another offering from the Girl Inside. Hope you enjoy.

This is a piece of fan fiction. It is in no way intended to add or detract from the actual games and stories put across regarding Lara Croft, despite the confusion that already exists on her back story. The characters depicted in the story are purely fictitious, and any resemblance to individuals, either living or dead, is entirely coincidental.

Ashley, part 10

I fidget in my seat, trying to get comfortable as the train rushes through the French countryside to our destination. It’s not my clothes that are making me restless, of course- my pleated white miniskirt and loose patterned tank top feel perfect against my smooth, hairless skin. It isn’t even the disapproving stare of my father at my long, slender legs that makes me uncomfortable. The source of my restlessness, for once, is my three younger sisters- or rather, the thing that’s also making them restless!

Ashley, part 9

My heart beats faster at the breathtaking sight of the ballerina effortlessly performing her steps. From the tiara pinned to her blonde hair, through her beautiful, embellished tutu and soft pink tights to her shiny satin pointe shoes, she is the very image of grace, elegance and femininity. As I watch her dance in the mirror, I actually have to remind myself that the ballerina… Is me.
